Mahatma Gandhi is timeless and ageless. His life is an example which has universal validity. His concepts of truth, non-violence and peace have brought about a great change not only in India but also in the whole world. Seven decades have gone by since we lost Mahatma, but still there are lot of discussions either in society, cinema or literature as to what he has left for the world and how his philosophy can be useful in dealing with the recent global challenges. Often his philosophy is talked about, but in reality it is very difficult to follow it as it requires great patience, hope, sense of struggle and approach to non-violence. There is so much chaos caused due to various selfish ends of humans in this world. The present paper is an attempt to discuss if the philosophy of Mahatma is put in the midst of this chaos, will it be helpful to resolve the contemporary 'Glocal' problems. For this the researcher has tried to dive deep into the literature as well as life of Mahatma Gandhi.
